Burrow adds e-signatures to adviser platform
Burrow, a DPR Group business, has added e-signature functionality for advisers, as part of its API-led Client Portal Module.
The e-signature feature, which allows documents to be signed electronically from anywhere in the world, aims to improve accessibility, alleviating delays to the application process and reducing adviser’s reliance on paper-based processes.
It also uses geo-location data and time stamps to authenticate the identity of the individual signing the document and provides a safe and secure way to sign documents electronically.
The functionality facilitates regulatory document acknowledgement through digital read receipts, particularly for documents such as Initial Disclosure Documents and Key Facts Illustrations.
Pradeep Raman, founder of Burrow, said: “Often application processes are delayed by complications in administrative procedures like signing documents.
“Such obstacles may include an individual with limited access to a printer or being unable to meet an agreed time and date for an appointment – both end up wasting the adviser and the customer’s time.
“E-signatures overcome these barriers and make the application process fast and easy.
“Following on from the pandemic, people are ready to embrace technology and use it to improve the overall mortgage process.”
